Welcome to Class 2 – Reception & Year 1

We are a mixed class of Reception and Year One children. We are part of the Foundation Stage and Key Stage One. Our teacher is Miss Ward and our teaching assistant is Miss Thompson.

This year in reception we are going to continue exploring the world around us whilst building on our mathematics and literacy skills.

This year in Year 1 we are going to build on the skills we learnt in reception and become much more independent during number challenges, writing and reading. We are looking forward to tackling new subjects such as; History, Geography and Science.

We will aim to work hard, become independent learners and make lots of new friends.

We have PE on a Monday. If you could please send your child’s PE kit in on Mondays and we will keep them in school until Friday.

Keep checking our website and newsletters to find out more. Thank you for visiting our class page. Please feel free to pop into class if you have any questions 🙂

We are special children of God…

We have been learning about God’s words for us. He said “You are precious to me.” We loved talking about why our names are special and why we thought our friends were special, too.

We are scientists…

We loved learning about the different animals from Animal Story. We were amazed to find out where they lived and what they sounded like. We got up close and personal with each and every animal.

We are mathematicians…

We have been learning how to sort objects by colour, size and type. We love to work in groups and listen to each others ideas.

We are creators…

We made our own monsters. We made our monster using lots of different, shapes. We had to say how many different shapes we used.

We are artists…

Throughout Art Week, Class 2 were inspired by Andy Goldsworthy. We used natural objects to recreate an autumn sculpture.
We spent time mixing autumn colours to prepare for our final piece and designing our sculpture.
We also created self portraits, which required colour mixing and observing our own faces using mirrors.
